70mm Festival at Aero

Coincidentally in reference to my comments about seeing movies on the big screen, there is a 70mm Festival at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.

You haven't experienced LAWRENCE until you've seen it in 70 mm. I got the privilege a few years back when it was roadshowed during it's restoration re-release. No film student should miss it!

I'd say the same for 2001, although most 70mm prints are trashed at this point. With a per-print cost of up to $100,000, you don't see many new 70 mm prints being struck, and with a 20 year-old print, it's probably heavily scratched and the colors are undoubtedly faded.

Crap, I totally missed these screenings I think. Damn it!
